This past July I ordered a Soyo 17" LCD monitor from Tiger Direct. It had a $70 rebate. Tiger no longer has this monitor available but it is the 17" version of this monitor …
Having done this dance before, I removed all three UPC codes from the box and sent these with my claim for the $70.
I was notified that my rebate had been denied due to not sending the correct UPC Bar Code.
I have no other bar code on the box to remit.
I call to discuss this matter and ask them to direct me to the place on the box where the correct UPC Bar Code is located. The direct me to a place on the box that has a UPC Bar Code removed and sent to them. I told them they are holding that Bar Code in their hands , soooo it can not be remitted.
Its still not acceptable. They admit to having three UPC Bar Codes from said box within their possession and that none of of the Bar Codes are the correct Bar Code to qualify for my $70 rebate.
I ask them if I can send them the box and they say thats not acceptable proof of purchase.
I have no recourse except to lay back and enjoy getting raped.
Tiger Direct stole my $70 and laughed about it to my face. I will never purchase any item ever again from Tiger Direct. I would also not recommend them to anyone else … but if you so decide, I would steer clear of any item that has a rebate offer attached.
Live and learn.
